First Place painting prize and Best In Show won in the Highlands Art League Fine Art Festival 2015

"Working with Bonefish & Tarpon Trust has been a wonderful opportunity for me to connect with like-minded people and to contribute to the science and mission of BTT:  Conservation through research, stewardship, education and advocacy."

​Harley-Davidson Motorcycles

Kelly's artwork "Conch Republic Mermaid" will be featured at Orlando Harley-Davidson's BIKE WEEK 2017. The mermaid was inspired by the Atocha shipwreck and a 1950's Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Sharks circle the wreck as a siren of the sea gathers her treasures. Take her for a ride on t-shirts and poker chips commemorating the event. Several Florida Harley-Davidson locations will carry the artwork.

Fine Art

 I began painting and drawing when I was a young girl, exploring natural Florida with my parents and brother.  We spent all of our free time immersed in nature; either in the woods or on the water.  I paint my memories - and I hope you find your own experience alive in my art.
